Hardcore Gamer: Konami’s Japanese site has revealed that P.T., the “Playable Teaser” for Silent Hills will be taken off of PSN on April 29.
Since I doubt we'll get the silent hills game developers should note what P.T did and follow in it's footsteps. The demo is a perfect example of how a horror game should be done.
Who knows. E3 is right around the corner, we may have more light shed on the situation then
Unfortunately with all that's been going on with Konami, its production has probably been halted. :/ I really hope it hasn't though. I'm glad that I have this masterpiece of a horror teaser/game downloaded to my PS4. It shouldn't be affected by this hopefully.
@white After all that positive reception received for PT no company in their right minds would announce anything on its potential hiatus or cancellation at the years biggest games expo. Wait for silence and avoidance on the matter from Konami come E3 if the project is indeed on permafrost.
Except for the fact that the last puzzle makes no sense, and it's still not exactly clear how/why it is done the way it is.
Alien Isolation already answered that, its awesome.
Its on its way to my mailbox. Cant wait to put on my elite 800 headphones and play this puppy! I've heard and read the best things about AI but Japanese horror games like Silent Hills are a different kind of beast than western horror...a very very disturbing kind of beast!
ALien isolation is completely different from what we were going to get here.
Games involving Del Toro seem to be cursed.
One is bad luck, two is a coincidence, three is a pattern. Hopefully his third try will be successful for the sake of him and all of us.
But not how a Silent Hill should be. Anyone who played the first 3 Silent Hill games knows it's about psychological pain and nightmares, not jump scares in first person
There are only 2 "jump scares" in p.t. (dying and when she throws the windowpane over the balcony), and the trailer they released for silent hills didn't have any. After playing p.t., I think first person is the best for horror. Better immersion.

Gold star for that man inbound.
Actually they said they'll remove it at some point when they first released it (people assumed it would be a way shorter time). So it doesn't necessary have to do anything with current events, but it could of course
The final proof that core gamers rule nothing.
And in reading this sad statement and all the news within 4 months and some plus time I go to sleep wary wondering about my wallet and hobby.
Gamers have nothing to do with internal conflict within konami.
will this being delisted erase it from my console, or my "Library"?
Quick Answer - "a7xgemini + If you have downloaded it, you own it forever and can re-download as many times times as you want using the same PSN ID you got it from originally." Boring Answer - When Gran Turismo HD released with a dozen cars and a track as a teaser, it was later removed from the PSN store less than 12 months later. I downloaded it back when that initial demo was available, and I was able to re-download it using an alternate PS3 6 years after it was removed. If Sony intend to erase P.T., it would be a ***k*n shame. It's a different story with Polyphony Digital and Kojima Studios. Even though H. Kojima has been with Sony just a couple of years shorter than K. Yamauchi, Kojima decided to go all multi-plat a decade ago (no fanboy-"ism", just messing). That would, or could, be the only explanation for neutering a teaser such as P.T. I mean, holy hell, it was an amazing concept to... conceive. The reveal of Del Toro and Reedus with Kojima leading. Just like the first time watching Ifrit slam a meteoroid down toward those stupid venus flytrap-looking things. I felt INCREDIBLE!!!!! Still, I don't think they'd be able to manage erasing it? I wouldn't know if it's possible to remove it off of systems. GT HD likely wasn't an exception, so I would like to say that it's safe to say it will continue to be downloadable using the original account.
It is Konami removing the demo....
I still have the Gran Turismo hd, and MGS4 demo's, problem is, I have to drill down past over 2400 items from my download list to get to them. 😧>_<😩 Gateway MT6706 2008
@kingPoS Agreed. I wish Sony would add a filter/search to the download list. Through the PSN website storefront my download list is over 40 pages and 1000 items (even worse when browsing on the Vita or PS3). That said, I still have access to LOTS of the stuff I've bought, but apparently some things have been permanently delisted for some people (seems to be mostly PSOne titles). I can understand PSOne titles being removed for compatibility issues, but if that was the case for them being permanently removed owners of said titles should receive some sort of compensation for no longer having any access to that specific content when the rest of the service is still running without issue.
No it won't
They could potentially pull the license and it would stop working. Not saying they are planning to do that in this case
That's probably what I was trying to get at in this circumstance with this unfortunate situation. It's two very different situations (after hearing Silent Hills won't come to fruition an hour ago). Konami. What in the hell. On a lighter note, rainbows! Wait, actually, this... "hells_supernova + 16h ago It is Konami removing the demo...." Konami "shared" Metal Gear with Sony at the beginning, so I misinterpreted it. With PD, they're a full-on first-party developer directed by K. Yamauchi. I have to say, thanks for the post uth11.
If you have downloaded it, you own it forever and can re-download as many times times as you want using the same PSN ID you got it from originally.
Are you sure we would be able to re-download it after they delete the game from PSN?.
It's usually deleted from the public directory 'aka' the psn store, the games that truly disappeared, were generally titles that hackers exploited. Case in point, I can still download TMNT Re-shelled or MVC2 again any time I want. Gateway MT6706 2008
Yes, more than likely you can. Quite a few games have been removed from PSN/XBL but you still can download it again as it still can exist on their server, just not up for people to see and download if they didn't before it was taken down. Lot's of disagrees from people who have no idea how this works but want to join in anyways.
I'd hate to think this game is dead. If Monolith would just make Condemned 3 that could do just nicely. Loved number 2!
Doesn't mean Kojima won't make a spiritual successor, but that's the wrong term for a game that has never been released. Perhaps we can call it the "end-product manifest"?
It's time to download it if you didn't. Silent Hills had an amazing potential, sadly.
